Since July 2016 I have been Director of Conservation at Audubon Naturalist Society, serving the greater Washington, DC region through environmental policy, advocacy, outreach, and stewardship. Prior to joining ANS, I spent five years at Defenders of Wildlife, analyzing federal projects and policies that touched upon a broad range of renewable energy, land management, and wildlife conservation issues. Before working  in environmental policy, I was an environmental and outdoor educator in Maryland, Massachusetts, Tennessee, and Oregon. I received a B.A. in Environmental Education from Swarthmore College and a Master of Environmental Science from the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, and I am a Senior Fellow in the Environmental Leadership Program’s Chesapeake Regional Network.
